Mitsubishi are in midst of major overhaul and it will comprise of distinct styling and tech friendly crossovers. They have already disclosed that they plan to launch six new vehicles by year 2020. There are some technical difficulties with these projections. One of them is the introduction of camera to replace traditional exterior mirrors. Now, Mitsubishi have announced that they have developed highest performing automotive camera technology. The company claims that their camera can detect objects that are within 100 meters range.
Mitsubishi also added that the technology is based on their artificial intelligence and its aim to reduce accidents on the roads particularly when car changes lane. For many, replacement of exterior mirrors with camera sound unsafe, but it must be pointed out that it has computational visual-cognition model. This model mimics human visual behaviour that concentrates on specific viewing field. The system is also able to differentiate between cars, motorcycles and pedestrians. There are camera found in other models too, but what makes Mitsubishi models unique is the fact that it increases the object detection range from 30 to 100 meters.
The accuracy for object detection is improved to 21 per cent from 18 per cent. The Japanese automaker will include this innovative technology in their vehicles in Japan from next year. Chopping off wing mirrors was taken way back in 2016. Japan was the first country to allow the usage of camera in place of mirrors. However, Mitsubishi isn’t the only one with such feature as BMW have already come up i8 Mirrorless Concept in 2016 at CES.
